What Is Herculist

Herculist is a safe list which allows you to generate traffic to a website or web page of your choosing.

A safe list is an online website that allows you to send an email advertising your business to other members of that same safe list. Generally this can be done for free in return for reading email ads of other members of the safe list.

Safe lists, including Herculist, are useful for online marketers in the online income niche as the majority of people viewing your ad will also be working online and looking for income and traffic opportunities.

Herculist works like many other safe lists, offering you the opportunity to email your ad to other Herculist members.

There are also a number of paid traffic packages offered by Herculist.

My Experience With Herculist

Once again, I am an independent affiliate of Herculist and receive commissions on upgrades and purchases made using my referral link.

Having said that, my experience with Herculist has been entirely positive and it is a traffic source that I use every day to build my lists and to build my online business.

I am a happy customer with a lifetime Gold upgrade which is currently being offered for $49 USD and I have more than earned back this amount from promoting my business using Herculist.

For the purposes of this review I am going to set up a tracked ad campaign today using one of the paid traffic packages offered by Herculist and you can see my real results with evidence below.

Herculist Case Study – Real Results

This case study will track and display real results received using Herculist.

In order to prove my results I am going to use my personal link tracking service of choice, Hits Connect.

My Tracker of Choice

Hits Connect will provide the evidence of how much traffic I receive.

For this case study I am going to purchase the “Traffic Bomb” package at Herculist which provides me with the following traffic for a one time cost of $39.

Your actual earnings using traffic purchased from Herculist will vary and is entirely dependent on what you are advertising. Based on that fact, this case study will review the traffic received and not the income earned from my traffic campaign.

I will be promoting my own eBook 90 Minute Residuals.

I added my 90 Minute Residuals list building link as a campaign of its own in my Hits Connect account.

I then used the link Hits Connect provides me as the link I am promoting using the Herculist Traffic Bomb package.

I will provide regular updates below as my traffic is delivered:

24 Hour Update

After a little over 24 hours my link being advertised with the Traffic Bomb package has received 140 views.

This has resulted in 6 new leads added to my email marketing list and 1 actual sign up to my business earning me real commissions.

48 Hour Update

After a little over 48 hours my link being advertised with the Traffic bomb package has received a total of 338 views.

This has resulted in 11 new leads added to my email marketing list and 2 actual sign ups to my business earning me real commissions.
